Going off label and increasing max dose on brintellix

Recommended Posts

I saw My pdoc this past Monday.  I had been taking the marketed max dose of Brintellix (20mg) since Jan of this year. I felt it was helping just not enough and I guess you could say I have a phobia of trying new meds. So she decided to go off label and increase my dose to 30mg.  She said she has a couple other patients at 30 and 40mg with great results. I really had no start up symptoms expect flatulence, which has come back.   Wondering if any others here have had their dr go above the recommended max dose on brintellix (or other meds) with success or was it a disaster.
